Designed for SOHO
Your office is connected to the outside world Internet or linked to the corporate network and trusted suppliers through the Intranet, and is vulnerable to attacks. The DFL-200 is a compact and easy-to-install unit that can address the needs of a SOHO network. With the functionality typically found in the more expensive devices, this device combines extensive firewall protection with Internet gateway functions, eliminating for you the need to install a separate firewall behind a remote router.
A DMZ port is provided to allow your web, mail and FTP servers to be directly accessed from the Internet. This alleviates congested server traffic from entering the your internal network, while providing your office LAN with the firewall protection. A built-in 4-port switch allows your workstations to directly connect to the firewall/router, saving you the cost and trouble of installation a separate Fast Ethernet switch.
The DFL-200 provides Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and inbound/outbound filters for your network. Virtual IP mapping maps public IP addresses to servers on the internal and DMZ networks for secure public access. The DFL-200 detects DoS (Denial of Service) attacks against your network operating systems and applications and alerts you of these attacks by e-mail.
Industry-standard IPSec, PPTP and L2TP VPN* provide secure communication between networks and clients. The DFL-200 provides Auto-Key Internet Key Exchange (IKE), and hardware accelerated DES and 3DES encryption. Client pass-through support is provided for IPSec, PPTP and L2TP.
Logging allows you to monitor your network. The DFL-200 provides extensive logging for filtering activities, session tracking activities, intrusion detection activities and user authentication activities. Logs can be easily searched by keywords, source, destination, time and date.
Setup and Management
Web-based configuration provides easy system setup and administration. Industry-standard MIBs are built into the device for platform-independent SNMP-based management and monitoring. A Command Line Interface is provided for you to set up and configure the device from a console, using the built-in RS-232 port.
